Labour wrong to back Claire Perry "default blocking"

Reacting to the Daily Mail's reports that Labour would be backing Claire Perry's calls for default blocking of adult content, Jim Killock said:

"Default blocks are a form of censorship. If placed in networks, they could create a national infrastructure for censorship.

"Default blocks on mobile are disrupting churches, blogs, chat sites and political campaigns. They are automatic and catch the wrong things. Persuading the majority of the population to live with censorship would be wrong."
